Writings on open access

From Peter Suber
Jump to navigation Jump to search

I've written a lot over the years about open access to science and scholarship. This bibliography of my writings on OA focuses less on news and more on commentary and analysis —that is, the pieces that may still be of interest. It includes books, newsletter essays, journal articles, preprints, and interviews. I omit the pure news pieces as well as minor pieces such as blog postings, listserv messages, letters to editors, presentation slides, and small web pages. I plan to keep it up to date. — Peter Suber.
